My Everyday Liquid Foundation ( oily skin)

The other day, my friend Jean commented me on facebook asking how can she deal with her oily skin. I gave her some tips from skin care and makeup and I also recommended Cover Girls' Clean oil-control liquid foundation. It is the same Clean liquid foundation but in a cuter and modern packaging. It does a great job in keeping the oil under control on my face. Love it!

WHAT: It is part of Cover Girl's Clean makeup collection. Cover Girl website claims "With our Clean Oil Control Makeup, you'll get all the shine control you want - without the drying coverage you don't. Our Clean foundation is made with ultra-light oil-absorbers that control oil, plus gentle conditioners that help prevent dryness. Best of all, it won't clog pores, for a clean, shine-free face, hour after hour! "

Also comes in Sensitive and Normal skin liquid foundation.


WHERE: They are available at your local drugstore at the beauty section.
PRICE: It will vary depends on where you go. I got it for 6.99 at Rite Aid.
COLOR: The shade I got is Soft Honey. It is a bit lighter than my skin tone but I 'd rather go lighter than darker so I still got it. I just make sure I blend it down to my neck, so I don't have a white mask on my face.
TEXTURE: water based liquid, thin, smooth and non-greasy feeling. Very easily to spread and blend.
COVERAGE: sheer to medium.
AMOUNT: 30 ml (1 fl oz)

HOW:
-Make sure you prep your face according to your skin type. I have oily skin so I use an oil-free face lotion. A primer is optional.
-Apply the foundation starting at the center brushing it away from the face. You can use your fingers, sponge or a foundation brush.
-Blend evenly.

FINAL THOUGHT: What I love most about this product is it does not make me look greasy at the end of the day. It looks like I have dewy skin as supposed to oily skin. Also, I love how it feels light like I'm not wearing any makeup at all ^_^

Have a great weekend!

  6. Hi, great review and pics.

    One question: does it smells like the old ones? I remember the foundation in the old packaging had a super strong chemical-like smell.

    Thanks. =)

  14. I got this foundation a while ago with a BOGO coupon, and I picked up the TOTALLY WRONG shade for my skin.. Silly me! :( So I gave it away to a friend because it was way too light. I want to try this again but with the right shade this time LOL. Maybe it'll work for my super oily skin. Thank you for the review!
